We initially teamed up as part of a project team for the ECE Design Competition in February 2019. ECE Design Competition was held by the ECE Department at the University of California, San Diego, in collaboration with Design Lab and other departments on campus. The goal of this competition was to improve the quality of life of patients and caregivers of Parkinson's Disease.
Journey to Startup
We won the ECE Design Competition's "Popular Prize" and carried this momentum into creating a startup here on campus. Since the design competition, we have been doing more customer discovery as part of different incubator programs such as NSF I-Cops, Blue Linc, and the Basement. We have also interviewed Physical Therapists and Neurologists who see Parkinson's patients on a daily basis. After careful discussions, we have decided to create a balance device that goes further than just solving problems for Parkinson's patients.
We are currently exploring different applications for our insole and we are excited by our findings. Currently, we have established that there is a large need for balance tech in athletics, so we have been speaking with coaches and athletes in and around Southern California. Our work on our prototype remains promising and ongoing.
Future of Stasis
Timing is critical for new solutions, and we believe current events could lead to many future opportunities. Firstly, due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, there is an increase in demand for technology that can be adapted remotely. Additionally, with increasing strides in Machine learning, now is the opportune moment to take advantage of the growing field to enable accurate real-time feedback in balance tech.
I am a Computer Science graduate student at Stanford University, specifically interested in Artificial Intelligence and its applications. Passionate about products that can bring positive, tangible transformation in people’s lives, I co-founded Stasis in a bid to enrich the application of what most of us take for granted: our balance.
I am a fifth year undergraduate student pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Chemistry. I am fascinated by the structural processes of all things man-made and the passion to develop new technologies to better enjoy our lives drives me today. With innovation at its forefront, Stasis will continue to find a solution for balance.
I am a recent graduate from UCSD, with a B.S in Electrical Engineering intending to pursue a career in the field of Intelligent Systems and Robotics. As an engineer, I am passionate about building solutions for problems we face on a day to day basis. I am excited to be able to contribute to the innovation at Stasis and be a part of the founding team.
I am a second year graduate student pursuing a degree in Computer Engineering with an emphasis in Machine Learning. As an engineer, I want to be at the forefront of future technologies and use my skills for the betterment of society. At Stasis, we will be working toward that goal and helping individuals with their sense of balance.
I’m a first year graduate student pursuing a degree in Electrical Engineering with focus on Intelligent Systems and Robotics at UCSD. As an engineer, I want to contribute to advancing technology that can enhance the quality of life for everyone regardless of their needs. I believe in Stasis’s mission to help people improve their balance in day-to-day life.
